About the Learning and Development Centre

The Learning and Development Centre (LDC) was created in 2007 to provide tailored, high quality learning opportunities for University staff. The centre caters for over 5000 people from all walks of University life, offering a range of opportunities from workshops and accredited courses, to coaching and mentoring – all free for University staff.

The Centre is part of the University’s Human Resources department and our staff aim to foster close relationships with academic and non academic departments to support them in achieving their objectives. We can help identify learning needs and design bespoke sessions to provide accessible, relevant learning and development opportunities for staff.

Individuals can browse the website to find out what’s on offer, and use our Planning your development tool to get started. You may also find it useful to look at the staff categories to find tailored suggestions on the course directory.
